Collaborative pumpkin cultivar evaluation trials have been conducted by North Carolina State University and the University of Tennessee for over a decade. North Carolina State University has published 2017 North Carolina and Tennessee Pumpkin Cultivar Evaluations, a report on specialty varieties. This trial evaluated varieties for yield, though the report also rates shape, color, suturing, vine habit, handle characteristics, fruit size measurements, and powdery mildew symptoms, and includes a photo of each variety. The report is available for free download.
